i wanna take the transmission out of my 1999 and put it in my 97 will it fit
It sounds like the engine struggles between 3000 and 4000 RPM when on the highway at about 60-75 mph. The problem does not occur until I am on the highway. It almost seems like I run out of gear and my car wont shift again to a higher gear. The steering wheel also shakes at this speed but I believe that is because I need an alignment. Are all of these connected? or what can it be?
My headlights and break lights are fine along with all power windows (including moon roof) but none of my fuses are blown. No idea where to start.

Indicator lights went from not working intermittently to blinking twice or four times as fast when activated.

When brakes are depressed, left indicator does not work. As soon as brakes are released, indicator works again. Left indicator blinks at 2x normal speed, right indicator binks at 4x speed.

Left brake light stays on when car is off.
Trunk open warning in dash is on all when car is running, trunk is definitely closed.

Tried switching the relay with one salvaged from a wrecked car, but this did not solve the problem.

As a side note, the intermittent wiper setting does not work at all either.

All bulbs are fine. All wires seem to be connected.
new thermostat temp sensor, Top hose gets very hot but lower hose is cold and heater doesnt put hot air only cold.
